TIPS FOR TRAVELLING IN THE HEAT WITH KIDS
Choose your destination wisely
Be careful of any tropical region. April in Thailand is the hottest I’ve ever been. It really depends on your children and their ages, but I’d carefully consider it.
Know your children
It’s important to know how they tick, their interests, and where the meltdowns might happen so you can put some preventative strategies in place.
Even if you don’t feel thirsty drink, and ensure your children are taking sips of water every ten minutes.
Time your activities well
Get up and out as early as you can to do your activities, particularly if it involves hiking. 10am is when the heat starts to kick in, although in the top end it never goes away.
Stay in an apartment or hotel
If your kids have the wrong temperament, or are really suffering, stay in accommodation that has air conditioning. This tip is mostly for those doing the camping experience.
Know your kids’ sign
If you start noticing symptoms such as muscle cramps, tiredness, nausea, vomiting – even an altered mental state, head to the AC as soon as you can and start cooling them down.
